I am debating about applying this upcoming cycle or retaking my MCAT. I have been told don;t apply until you are certain you are ready as the first time is better than the second. However, I did not do so well on my CARS section and I am worried about whether it will filter me out or prevent me from getting in. I live in Ohio and I am a white, male with:
MCAT: 508 (130/ 123 /129/126)
My extracurriculars include: Research for 2 years, community volunteering (100+ hours), shadowing (75+ hours), multiple clubs (w/ leadership positions in some)
Any help with this decision will be greatly appreciated!
